The Frog and the Peach in New Brunswick was honored by The Garden State Culinary Arts Awards on May 7 with the prize for “Best Restaurant in New Jersey.”

Modeled after the James Beard awards, these are state’s first juried food awards. Nominations were sought from the public, and then the GSCAA executive committee, consisting of food writers around the state, named ten nominees in 13 categories.

The Frog and The Peach has been one of New Jersey’s top restaurants since 1983. Bruce Lefebvre, executive chef since 2000, bought the restaurant in 2012. Lefebvre was trained at The Culinary Institute of America and is lauded for his modern take on American cuisine. He also shares a passion for local New Jersey products and fish.

The Frog and The Peach isn’t just a delicious dining destination; it’s also a great spot for meetings or events. From the intimate Wine Room to the upstairs that feels tucked away from the main dining room to the lush oasis-style room, The Frog and The Peach has a variety of spaces for your next event. Wait, you haven’t been there yet? Email me and share why you think meetings over meals are successful. I have two $100 gift certificates to award to the best responses!

October is the month of fall color viewing, pumpkin picking, and pizza. Yes, October is National Pizza Month, and if you’re looking to commemorate the occasion, head to New Jersey.

Others may disagree—let’s make that, others will certainly disagree—but last year Food & Wine Magazine named New Jersey the best pizza state in America, followed by Connecticut and New York in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively. Pennsylvania landed in seventh place and Massachusetts nabbed 10th place.
